Michelle will be talking through the whole process of how to find, approach and sign with an agent. This seminar will suit those who are beginning their search for the very first time, and also those who already have an agent who are looking for their next! Michelle will use her extensive knowledge to cover topics such as CVs & headshots, cover letters, the audition process with an agent, and finally securing and signing with an agent, and there will also be time at the end for a Q&A to ask any burning questions you might have.
